This event is for anyone who identifies as a woman, as well as nonbinary and genderqueer beings who are comfortable in a space that centers around the experiences of queer women. Come out and call in the connections we long for - whether that’s queer friends, crushes, or someone to U-haul with.

This is a safe(r), non-sexual environment, where folx can build community and/or get your flirt on responsibly and respectfully. Transphobia/transmission and binarism aren’t tolerated at these events.
